The lines above that statement discuss how a cached resource is  
served based on a URL comparison.  No other processing stages take  
place, like (as the page mentions) URL manipulation by mod_proxy or  
mod_rewrite, or authorization, dynamic content generation (PHP, CGI,  
JSP) etc.

The point (see <>, mostly 1 and 3)  
of caching a resource is to do the expensive stuff (fetching from a  
back-end proxy, regular expression based rewrites, running a  
scripting language to generate a page based on database information)  
once, put the result in the cache and serve it from the cache on  
subsequent requests.

Thanks for helping out with the translation.
